We all face obstacles-physical, emotional, between the ears. The good news is that everything we have fought back against can empower us, IF WE KNOW HOW TO USE IT. My obstacles happen to be anxiety and depression. I call it living in the gray, and I've been mired in it my whole life. To be honest, it sucks. But I have also recently recognized that this same gray that has held me down has also empowered me to make my wildest dreams come true. You have probably overcome many of your own obstacles, but you;ve been too close to the conflict to clearly see what you’ve accomplished. We are all UNBREAKABLE, no matter what we do, who we are, or what traumas we may have experienced. We just need to admit that we can’t walk this walk alone.
After years of rejection but with constant hustle, Jay Glazer has built a career has one of the most iconic sports insiders, earning himself a spot on the Emmy award-winning Fox NFL Sunday, a role as the confidant of coaches and players across the league, and a role as himself alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on HBO series Ballers. His gym, Unbreakable Performance Center, attracts some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and is the headquarters to the powerful charity MVP (Merging Vets and Players) that Jay founded in 2015. MVP began as a weekly physical and mental health huddle with combat veterans and retired athletes has expanded to seven locations, helping soldiers and players transition to a new team.
In Unbreakable, Jay Glazer talks directly to you, his teammates, and shares his truth. All of his success from his screeching-and-swerving joy ride through professional football, the media, the fighting world, Hollywood, the military-warrior community, comes with a side of relentless depression and anxiety. Living in the gray, as Jay calls it, is just a constant for him. And, in order to work through the gray and succeed, Jay has to maintain an Unbreakable Mindset. With this book, you can too.
· Be of Service—help others and help yourself in the process
· Build Your Team—give support, get support
· Never Underestimate the Power of Laughter—never take yourself too seriously
· Be Proud of Your Scars—our trauma makes us who we are
Throughout Unbreakable, Jay will use his stories—featuring some of the biggest, baddest, and most fascinating characters in the public eye today—to show how he walks this walk, has learned that while the gray is very real, it doesn’t have to define him. And it doesn’t have to define you either.
“Jay is real, and that is what makes him great. But what’s consistent about Jay is his loyalty. You can ALWAYS count on him. Unbreakable reminds me of this: Jay’s can-do and will-do attitude. In a world of ‘what have you done for me lately’ or ‘what can you do for me now,’ Jay stands out as a real one.” -- Chuck Liddell, former UFC light heavyweight champion, UFC Hall of Famer
“As a woman, veteran, and athlete, forged by tough love, I initially underestimated just how much Jay’s friendship, mentorship, and insights into mental toughness and vulnerability would shape my life. Unbreakable encourages readers to unlock their potential, lean into the uncomfortable, and stand proud of what makes them different.” -- Kirstie Ennis, U.S. Marine Corps sergeant and door gunner, Paralympic snowboarding athlete, first female above-the-knee amputee to summit Mount Kilimanjaro
“Jay’s a fighter, in every sense of the word. He’s not only Unbreakable; he’s an underdog who believes in people so much that it helps them believe in themselves. I am one of those people.” -- Nate Boyer, Green Beret, Bronze Star recipient, former Seattle Seahawk
“Jay Glazer helps people look forward and know that it’s okay to be different, because we all are. Unbreakable is inspiring and motivational. It teaches people that the phrase ‘I got your back’ is for always, and that you are never alone.” -- Royce Gracie, first-ever UFC champion, UFC Hall of Famer, and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioner
“Jay has always had an unmatched passion and desire to help others, but as Jay’s friend and business partner, what has been so amazing is witnessing his personal growth. In Unbreakable, his ability to help others has been elevated to a whole new level.” -- Lindsey Berg, two-time captain of the U.S. Women’s Olympic Volleyball team, and two-time silver medalist
“This book is one of the most meaningful books I’ve ever read. It’s raw and real, coupled with compelling writing and entertaining moments. Like Jay Glazer, Unbreakable is also one of a kind. Read it and become Unbreakable!” -- Jon Gordon, twelve-time bestselling author of twenty-four books, including The Energy Bus
“Jay Glazer sits at the intersection of authenticity and heart in everything he does. Jay has impacted many lives with his genuine vulnerability and grit, creating a space of belonging for those around him. Unbreakable is no different, offering an impassioned invitation to be and to own your own unique self with everything you do.” -- Kami Craig, two-time Olympic gold medalist in water polo
“From the day I met Jay Glazer, I recognized his ability to turn scars into superpowers. He is an inspiring example of a kind character who sets an example of wearing one’s adversities like badges of honor and embracing one’s vulnerability as a signature of human courage. Unbreakable proves this fantastically.” -- Hayley Paige, famed wedding gown designer --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
About the Author
Born and raised in Manalapan, New Jersey, Jay Glazer got his start covering the New York Giants for the New York Post and the local cable channel, NY1. Prior to joining the Fox Sports family in 2004, he covered the NFL for CBS SportsLine and was an insider on CBS Sports' The NFL Today. In Glazer's first year in studio at Fox NFL Sunday, he was named Sports Illustrated's Media Person of the Year. In August 2018, he signed on with The Athletic, the award-winning subscription-based website for die-hard sports fans. Among his many scoops over the years are the New England Patriots' Spygate video, Oakland Raider Barret Robbins's Super Bowl Mexican bender, the NFL subpoenas in the BALCO drug-lab scandal, the league's new concussions rule, and on and on.
Outside football, Glazer has developed a widely recognized expertise as a trainer and broadcaster in the world of mixed martial arts. With business partner Randy Couture, he has trained more than 100 NFL players, including Jared Allen, Odell Beckham Jr., and Callais Campbell, improving their on-field performance with MMA techniques. He has also served as a special guest trainer for the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, and other teams. With insights gained from his own cage-fighting career (4-3 in professional MMA and submission fights), Glazer hosted the first MMA show ever broadcast in the U.S., as well as the Pride Fighting Championships on FoxSportsNet. In 2014, he co-founded the Unbreakable Performance Center, a private training facility in West Hollywood regularly frequented by Chuck Liddell, Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, Wiz Khalifa, Demi Lovato, and Chris Pratt, as well as numerous NFL, NHL and MMA athletes.
Despite his full plate of media and sports assignments, it's Glazer's commitment to military veterans that has truly captured his heart. Alarmed at the tough road--depression, anxiety, substance abuse and suicide--that veterans and former professional athletes often share, in 2015, he and former U.S. Army Green Beret Nate Boyer founded the charitable organization MVP (Merging Vets and Players) to assist these two groups as they adjust to civilian life. As Jay says, "In a nation where twenty-two veterans commit suicide every day, we haven't lost a single MVP member yet."
Glazer's strong connection with sports fans and his unique persona have sparked his growing demand as an actor in major TV and film comedy-dramas. He has a prominent, recurring role as himself in all five seasons of the popular HBO series, Ballers, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. His other acting credits include Bones, The League, The Game Plan and The Longest Yard.

Jay Glazer appeared on Dr. Phil last week talking about his new book, "Unbroken." Dr. Phil praised the work as a page-turner, funny, and surely a best seller. Jay talks about his depression and what he calls living in the “GRAY.”
I ordered it and devoured it as I gagged at his overuse of the “F” word and the “MF” word, which is used on every page. This disgusted me, but I continued to read anyway.
Glazer is an athlete, sportswriter, and announcer who has earned success while he struggled with depression, anxiety, and ADD. His book is littered with name droppings of the rich and famous. The meat of the book is the need for all of us to have a team. Every one of us, even if we are weird, depressed, ill, or have personalities that are a little off. People need people!
Because of Glazer’s work he has been responsible for saving lives of many depressed, homeless, and war vets who would have otherwise committed suicide.
His message couldn’t have been timelier as I received the news that a friend of mine had ended her life. Having lost her eyesight and having a husband whose health was failing, she couldn’t function. She didn’t have a team who had her back. Where were those who knew her and called her friend?
The news of her death stabbed me in the heart. I was convicted of my inadequacy at friendship. I was convicted of my needing to judge when someone was different, needy, or who’s personality was like my own sometimes, a little off the mark. I had often thought of her. But I hadn’t called. I had previously encouraged her to have the courage to take a plane from Tennessee to Texas even though her eyes were failing her. She did have courage then. We had the best time as she came and stayed a few days. She met many of my friends and sipped mimosas at brunch with us. Over time, the distance and life just got in the way of me being engaged in the importance of that friendship.
Joe Glazer’s book, disgusting as the language is, was an eye opener for me to become a better friend, a better team builder of my inner circle of weird, and not so weird people whom I call friends. We all need to be a part of a team who’s got our back, regardless of our personality disorders, depression, life threatening illness, or just plain craziness. Many of us are living and functioning in the “GRAY.”
For some reason, this book missed the spot for me. I couldn't relate to the things Jay talked about which is probably why I was disappointed with this book. Jay tries to keep you engaged and make you part of his team but wasn't inspired.
This is not a bad book. It was a good read but I didn't get what I wanted out of it.
Although this book has been one of the best books I've read to date (I don't know alot about sports ) I still don't know how to help her!! But I won't stop trying, I'll always be there for her no matter how many times she tries to push me away.
Thank you Jay Glazer for all that you do, and will do for those who need a lift!!!
Love your book!!
